Today, my sister asked me to help her set up for my niece's birthday party. Being the lazy person that I am, I got my niece to blow up the non-helium balloons. Apparently she's allergic to latex and I'll be the one paying for the hospital bill. FML

I voted YDI, but I think I may have been a bit hasty. Who's to say that the allergy was well known? I mean, I know parents today, and if their child is allergic to something, they don't keep it in the house. I think if they knew she was allergic to latex the wouldn't get latex non-helium balloons. If they knew about it and still got them, they should be the ones paying the hospital bill, because it's their own damn fault there were latex balloons in the first place. Chances are they didn't know, and what a way to find you. At least she's okay, right?

Allergic to latex? Poor girl.... ;)

Nice birthday present.

That kinda sucks that you have to pay the hospital bill - it's not like you knew about her allergy before and deliberately gave the the balloons..... right?

There's no way they can legally bill her for that, she didn't know her niece was allergic. And if she knew her rights, she wouldn't be paying a dime.

It's her niece. Have a freaking heart. People like you who don't take responsibility for their mistakes because you're not required to legally is what's wrong with the world.

It seems the majority of the votes are YDI. I'm going to assume you're being sarcastic when you refer to yourself as lazy. I'm sure you were off putting up streamers or something, and told the little girl "here, you want to help, too ?" Did you know she was allergic to latex ? Obviously not. How old is your niece ? If she's six or up, I say her parents should have taught her to know her allergies by now. Kids who are allergic to peanut butter, for example, have to tell cafeteria staff so. Is she the same niece that the party was for or the sibling of the birthday girl ? If so, there shouldn't be latex balloons at all. Her parents [your sister ?] should know better. Maybe the parents didn't know, but then it's nobody's fault and the parents should pay their own daughter's hospital bill. Don't they have health insurance for her ? FYL

More like f the little girls life. You definetly deserve.

At least u don't have to pay for a coffin! Right?
